Spotted Dog - A Year-Round Treat
One of the most well known St. Patrick’s Day foods in the U.S is Irish Soda Bread, a sweet, cakelike dessert often called “Irish Bread.” In Ireland, it’s also called “Spotted Dog,” “Railway Cake,” or “Curnie Cake,” depending on the area where it’s made. Made with white flour, caraway seeds, raisins, and buttermilk, it’s really a year-round treat that’s even more delicious when spread with softened Kerrygold Irish butter and served with a cup of tea, coffee, or even a spot of whiskey! The recipe is from my newest cookbook, Flavors of Ireland (Ambassador International).
